Turner was traded to the Hawks on Monday in exchange for Kent Bazemore, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
It's no secret the Hawks have been looking to move Bazemore for quite some time, but they'll bring in a veteran on a similar contract in Turner, who will also hit free agency in the summer of 2020. A former No. 2 overall pick, Turner appeared in 73 games for Portland last season, averaging a career-low 6.8 points to go with 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 22 minutes per game. The veteran will join a crowded wing rotation in Atlanta -- the Hawks added De'Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish via the draft -- but he could see increased time as a backup ball-handler behind Trae Young.
Turner contributed 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 12 rebounds and 11 assists across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 116-89 win over the Grizzlies.
The last Portland player to score two consecutive triple-doubles was about 30 years ago with Clyde Drexler. What's even more remarkable is that both of the totals came from off the bench. The nine-year vet's season has disappointed with an assort ment of injuries, but he's certainly topped off the season on a positive note.
Turner totaled 13 points (5-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, 10 assists and a steal across 25 minutes in the Trail Blazers' win over the Timberwolves on Monday.
Turner came out of nowhere to notch a triple-double in Monday's win. He was perfect from the floor and the free-throw line with his 13 points. Turner played his most minutes since Feb. 5, and the triple-double should be viewed as an outlier rather than a sign of things to come as Turner is not heavily involved in the team's rotation on a regular basis.
Turner tallied four points (1-4 FG, 2-4 FT), four assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 15 minutes during Friday's 122-110 win over the Pelicans.
Turner has combined to earn 25 minutes across these last two tilts after missing two games with a knee injury. The recent addition of Rodney Hood, emergence of Jake Layman, and steadiness of both Al-Farouq Aminu and Maurice Harkless (knee) has resulted in Turner being less involved lately. As such, Turner is tough to trust outside of deeper leagues.

Turner put up six points (3-4 FG), three rebounds, three assists in 18 minutes Thursday in the Trail Blazers' 127-118 win over the Spurs.
Turner only turned the ball over once and the Trail Blazers were plus-five during his time on the court, but the competent performance probably won't be enough to earn him more minutes in the foreseeable future. With the ascending Jake Layman seeing his playing time pick up and the Trail Blazers adding Rodney Hood to their wing mix, Turner, Maurice Harkless and Seth Curry may all see their minutes trend downward from the level they were at earlier in the season.
Turner (Achilles) is not is not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
